McDonald's portions in the UK are much smaller than in the US.

Very true I forgot about that, as you said the US counter below is slightly higher.

Long before I started training I remember being stuck on 154lbs skinny as hell for 6ft1. My girlfriend and now wife suggested I try her mcd's cheeseburger.

Of course I liked it and with me having the bug I must have gone 3 or 4 times a week. Needless to say I gained about 30lbs of fat and could feel my man boobs bounce when I walked down the stairs at home.

I'm not sure about the portion sizes but we have better ingredients going into our McDs over here. Our French Fries for instance are 100% potato (dextrose added when potato sugar content is seasonally low, salt added after cooking, cooked in 100% rapeseed oil) compared to the following list of ingredients in the US:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef, wheat and dairy sources), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil).

TheGimp is absolutely correct. The fries made at McDonalds in the USA contain a ton of trans saturated fats compared to those made in the UK. There is a significant difference between the McDonalds many North Americans eat here and that of Europe. If you ever take a trip to Europe, it's worth a trip to McDonalds to see what you would get.
